Naturopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine in its philosophy and approach to disease.
There are 6 principles that guide the philosophy of naturopathic medicine.
Do no harm
Treat the cause of disease
Treat the whole person
Healing power of nature
Doctor as teacher
By determining the underlying cause of disease and supporting the whole person including physical, mental, and emotional aspects, naturopathic medicine is well suited for addressing chronic illnesses that continue to become evermore prevalent. This approach complements the care that medical doctors provide allowing for an integrative approach to health care that best fulfills patient needs.
